The Real Deal 1/20/2009
NY1 looks at the partnership between the city and developer World-Wide Group to create three new public schools. The first, already completed, is PS 59, at 228 East 57th Street. The developer will also build an unidentified new elementary school and a new High School of Art and Design in other buildings at 57th Street and Second Avenue. The World-Wide Group will also create a 59-story residential tower, with retail space underneath. The new schools are slated to open in 2012.
